About Dlinza Forest Aerial Boardwalk

South Africa and its subtropical province of KwaZulu-Natal are both testimony to the beauty and profusion of natural treasures to be found within the borders of one country. This province is home to the Dlinza Forest and its aerial boardwalk, which showcases the forest and its verdant greenery off to perfection.

The boardwalk extends some 127 metres and is perched 10 metres above the forest floor. It culminates in a steel viewing platform, which is a breath-taking 20 metres high, giving visitors a panoramic view of the fauna and flora that is found so abundantly in this part of the country. The local vegetation includes towering trees and a number of different, but equally magnificent tree orchids that flower in breath-taking beauty.

Within the forest itself, there are walking trails, which wind through the lush vegetation and allow visitors to see, smell and feel the wonder of nature around them. These trails are the Impunzi Trail (1/3 kilometres long), Unkonka Trail (1.8 kilometres) and Bishop’s Seat, which is a lovely clearing in the heart of the forest. The boardwalk is perched just above these, and offers panoramic views of the forest from this different perspective.

At these elevated heights, the exquisite variety of bird species can be seen. Look out for some of the 65 different species that are found in Dlinza Forest. These include the crowned eagle and the spotted ground thrush. There are also lynx, duikers, bush babies, porcupines, mongoose and 80 different butterfly species. This abundance and diversity makes the Dlinza Forest Aerial Boardwalk the perfect attraction for families and friends, young and old.
